    Very nice start! I never played the original, but this sure looks like the Dodgeball I remember from my gameboy. Great job with the camera, it feels exciting. I found it got boring a bit quick, so something needs to be done to liven it up, but I'm not sure what.

    really cool i love it
    must have taken a little bit to make this fun but does get boring pretty fast
    keep up the good work

    can i use your code to build off of it?  i'd like to create a game like this, but a basketball version... i'll give you credit definitely for laying the foundation and link to this game...

    since the code is under GPL, you can use it for anything you want (but you have to keep GPL license).
    But the bodies and some heads images are not mine, they are from the original game. It's not GPL at all.
    Maybe take the last version of the code (on github), all data is under GPL, it's safer. You can email me for any question.

    Good luck with your project !

    Anyone know why I'd get this error?
